Because we have an extended school day, we will not have to make up the day we missed on March 4, for a snow day. We will also be out of school on March 30. Parents, students and teachers are encouraged to rally at the capitol to help bring more funding to education. This would be a great learning experience for children. If you can join us that day, please do!


Just a reminder that the foyer in the Wynona Town Hall is our library and there are tons of books to choose from. Feel free to come and get all the books you want, no time limit to bring them back. We also accept books from those who want to donate. It is amazing how many new titles there are. There is no charge, no hassles, just come and get what you want, bring them back when you want and enjoy!

There are also some clothes of all sizes for anyone who needs them. We are happy to help out if we have the sizes you need, again, all free.


Wynonans are reminded that the 4-wheeler/golf cart stickers were due for renewal on January 1, 2015. There have not been very many who have renewed, so just remember that they are due.

It is also a town ordinance that all dogs are to be registered through the town. This is a onetime per dog charge. The cost for the registration and town tag is $2.50. Proof of rabies vaccination must be presented when purchasing the tag.


At this time, nobody has volunteered to take over Founder’s Day activities. The Town Board has been discussing maybe not even having it this year. Maybe to have it every other year like the Alumni activities. It takes a lot of time and effort and the ones who have done it in the past are burned out with being in charge and no one to help. It is a huge undertaking and lots of planning is involved, as well as lots of donations are needed. If anyone has any ideas or input, contact town hall.


The Wynona Board of Trustees met for the March meeting on March 17th at Town Hall. In addition to regular business, Trustee Della Carter and Town clerk Tennie Slone were sworn in for four year terms, Trustee Loretta Little was unable to attend and will be sworn in before April 15.

The Board voted to declare April 2015 as Fair Housing Month and to approve an amended resolution to an ordinance adopting and providing equal access to housing, prohibiting discriminatory housing practices, providing for the referral of a housing discrimination complaint, and declaring an emergency. They also approved final payment to Cardinal Engineering for the CDBG waterline grant. Police Chief Brian Lenington reported on his activities since taking his position last month. A reminder to parents, curfew in Wynona is 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Also a reminder that the Town parks are closed and no one is to be there after dark. Mayor Lott reported that she had heard several good reports on our new Police Chief.

Attending the meeting were; Brian and Billie Lenington, Donna Swanner, Evelyn Pitts, Della Carter, Harley Towell, Nancy Deatherage, Goober Robinson, Janet Delaney, Johnnie Lott and Tennie Slone.


Wynonans offer their sincere condolences to the family and friends of Dyan Little Franetovich, whose husband Steve and son Clayton were tragically killed in a motorcycle crash in Lincoln County. Dyan’s mother Loretta Little lives in Wynona, and Dyan grew up here. We are all so saddened by her loss and our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
